the kim jong-un government is looking at some significant financial problems. spee-1 very quickly. north korea has been aggressively exporting monetary nonmonetary goal. if you're trying to tighten up the financial affects against north korea, you need to look at these tradable precious metals as sanction the item. they are typically marked with the north korean emblem. when they're not, the gold can be tested precise as to where its origin emanates from. so you could create a verification compliance that could screen out the gold export which might be generating as much as a billion plus a year for north korea. our estimate 2005 north korea's illicit earnings on october $2,801,000,000,000, and that was overtly -- i think it's increasing. >> thank you for the idea, dr. asher. that's a good one. we would go to mr. marino. >> thank you, chairman. good afternoon, gentlemen and thank you for being here. over here. first of all let me say that i personally did not consider a retired basketball player showing up at his own pr promotion in a wedding dress a series credible ambassador representi

, that the father, the grandfather of kim jong-un has exceeded now the direct threats against the united states, the threats of nuclear war on the peninsula, the threats of attacking hawaii, of attacking guam, of attacking the mainland united states with nuclear weapons. let's make clear. he doesn't have the capability to do that. but he is taking it to a different level. and there's a lot of people that are looking on and they're trying to calm the situation down. we heard today from south korea's defense ministry spokes man. listen -- >> translator: north korea's continuing threats against south korea such as saying it is entering a state of war, are never acceptable since it is harming peace and stability on the korean peninsula. the recent military exercises such as key resolve and bold eagle and the u.s. strategic bombers' deployment on the peninsula were defensive in nature against north korea's possible provocation. >> reporter: now, the real threat according to some veteran north korea watchers like dr. ham park of the university of georgia, is that the young north korean leader is back
greeted their leader kim jong-un during his made for tv inspection tour of military border facilities. kim wants the world to see this as he has dramatically stepped up his dangerous rhetoric. he's even threatening a nuclear threat as he faces tough u.n. sanctions for the nuclear test. the obama administration isn't backing down. >> we're also going to continue to increase the pressure if they don't make the right choice. >> reporter: on his way to afghanistan, defense secretary chuck hagel made clear how closely the u.s. was watching. >> the united states of america and our allies are prepared to deal with any threat. >> cnn has learned the u.s. has recently stepped up surveillance using aircraft, radars, and satellites already nearby. military officials say so far there are no signs of unusual military moves by the north. but there is a disturbing new weapons program, the kn-08. u.s. officials say this missile, shown in a north korea military parade last year, is now undergoing engine testing. it's a three-stage ballistic missile with a potential 3,000 mile range. that's not as far as th
